Every day I am reminded of the many ways people choose to serve. I feel so grateful to have stumbled across many organizations, corporations, for-profit businesses, and individuals who are dedicated to serving and supporting the missions of nonprofit organizations - even if they themselves don’t work for or run one.
That’s how I felt when I connected with Robyn Mays of Digital Butter, a South African marketing agency. She and co-founder Richard Eltringham are dedicated to advancing the missions of nonprofits and I feel so fortunate to share with you all a great resource they are offering for our nonprofit community.
Liz: Let’s start in traditional Smile Project fashion. Give me a “Happiness is.”
Robyn: "Happiness is.. watching all our work come together for good by growing businesses or growing nonprofits!
